Our schools outreach volunteers promote endocrinology to over 100 families

13 Dec 2021


Two of our members, Dr Maria Phylactou and Dr Bijal Patel, from Imperial College London, recently spoke to school children and their parents from York about endocrinology, what endocrinologists do and how to become an endocrinologist. The York Independent and State Schools Partnership (ISSP) is a partnership of 12 secondary schools and their lecture series is aimed at years 7 and 8. Dr Phylactou and Dr Patel spoke to over 100 families during their interactive online talk and their lively Q&A session went on for over 20 minutes.

You can watch their lecture on the York ISSP lecture page.

Dr Phylactou and Dr Patel are Society schools outreach volunteers, who help bridge the gap between schools and STEM professionals in virtual outreach sessions. If you would like to learn more about these volunteers or are interested in becoming one yourself please visit our webpage.
